Is There Vector Support?

Post by shuniu » Thu Oct 16, 2003 6:21 pm

I used Vector in my program and got the following errors:

01992950_24.java:46: Can't find method `add(LB;)' in class `java.util.Vector'.
bs.add(b);
^
01992950_24.java:51: Can't find method `get(I)' in class `java.util.Vector'.
B minB = (B)bs.get(0);
^
Is it because Vector class is not supported in UVA?

Vector is supported. However, the methods you mentioned are not, so instead of add(), use addElement(). And use elementAt() instead of get().

Cheers!

Carthage, thanks a lot for your answer, as it helped me as well.
This is so stupid. I can't believe this. The last time I visitied this site was ages ago. And they still were saying this nonsence about being patient regarding java.
Those lazybones cannot lift a finger.
it would be great if you replied this post. really.

Those lazybones are rewriting the system and in the mean time will not upgrade their old.
Anyway, nobody forces you to use this system that is created and maintained by enthousiastic volunteers, so if you don't like it, go away and stay away.

ye, probably that is all you are left with to say.
Anyway, Joe, just don't be offended. It is just a bit annoying we cannot use the advantages of java language and it seems to be like that for a long time.

I come here a year later and the situation is still almost the same. Unbelievable. :-?

Well, situation is not exactly the same. They have an experimental server that supposedly runs Java 1.6. I haven't tried it yet, but I did get an invitation the first time they tested it. After I registered I found out that only C/C++ submitions would be accepted, so I gave up. Apparently they ran Java 1.6 test contest later on, but I am not sure how that went. I don't even know why they are quiet about it, I think it is a huge thing. Especially because the new server is located at Baylor, meaning that they are getting a real support from ACM ICPC.

Well, how huge can it be if I see them saying "be patient, please" for 2 years already? And, in addition, I did not come at the very beginning of them starting saying that.
As they said it is not important to them as any other issues and that is why it is done at a snail's pace.

I just submitted a solution to a problem in the currently running contest, which contains this line:

Code: Select all

System.out.printf("Case %d: %d\n", tc++, best);
I just hope they switch to the new system completely as soon as possible :)

Yes, it did.

I hope you understand that it still does not work on UVa, but it does on their test server? I was kinda disappointed that the last contest didn't run there.
